Integrated undergraduate/graduate university Study of Law

The Integrated undergraduate/graduate university Study of Law is carried out with the aim of educating lawyers who are trained to work in the judiciary, public administration, and economy. As a prerequisite to the existence and functioning of every modern state,  there is  a  need for  the training of  professionals qualified to do judicial work in the judicial branch and the state attorney’s office, to do the work of lawyers and public notaries, to do legal and administrative work in state administration, local and regional self-government,  and in governing bodies of the European Union, to do legal work in companies, diplomatic and  consular offices, and other work in the economy and administration.

Carrying out of the study programme through the integrated first and second level is in accordance with the requirements of the legal profession because it enables the entire  theoretical and practical programme content to be covered; it is also in line with the dominant model of the Central European countries, that is, with the most recent experiences of educational university programmes in countries with similar legal culture and education system, such as Italy, Germany, Austria, and Hungary. This study programme is in accordance with the programmes of other faculties of law in Croatia with regard to the content of core courses, while  at the same time it  provides  specific  education in elective courses through which the Faculty aims to ensure  recognisability, and enables national mobility of students and lecturers.
